Hero Week Day 7: Train like a machine!

The tagline to Noah Galloway’s website says it all, “Train like a machine.”

And you gotta believe that he means it.

“On December 19, 2005 Noah Galloway and his fellow Army infantrymen completed a standard check for weapons and other irregularities in a nearby village, in Yusufiyah, Iraq, before returning to the abandoned potato warehouse they called home. Galloway went to sleep. A lieutenant soon jostled him awake. He climbed in a vehicle and drove off to pick up some platoon-mates still out performing searches.
“Then,” Galloway says, “I got blown up.”
The explosion had come from a trip-wire-operated homemade explosive device.

He was unconscious for several days before waking up on Christmas morning 2005, where his mother had to explain to her 24-year-old, fitness-obsessed son that two of his limbs had been ripped off by an IED explosion, which he could not remember.” (

Since his injury, Noah has participated in two warrior Dash events and a Barbarian Challenge. As a member of TEAM X-T.R.E.M.E Noah has completed three Tough Mudder competitions and the Bataan Memorial Death March. Noah has many more events planned for the remainder of 2012 including a climb with The Heroes Project to Carastensz Pyramid (one of the seven summits of the world). (
